Four Ingredient Thin Mints

Four Ingredient Thin Mints

20 Ritz crackers (don't use low-fat or low-salt)
6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
1 tablespoon shortening
¾ teaspoon peppermint extract (not the same as peppermint oil)



First, line a pan with parchment or wax paper.
In a double boiler (or a bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water), melt the chocolate and shortening. When the mixture is smooth, stir in the peppermint extract. Using two forks, dip the cookies one at a time into the chocolate. Move them to the pan to cool.

Best chilled in the freezer.
